It’s a special occasion when a book squeezes a tear out of my blackened reader heart, when words make the butterflies flutter deep within the rotten gut of a woman burned by the reality of “real life”. So when it happens, more than once within the pages of the same book, you know you have something special…and you treasure it.
Ash is one of those characters you immediately love and want her to win, you want her to have everything that life has to offer. You root for her and her quirky, straight-forward crazy ass so hard that when she is let down, even by someone you have come to adore you are PISSED, sad, and you desperately want her to be fought for, deserving nothing less.
Flint is fading, sinking into the abyss that life has put before him. Loving someone out of his reach, thinking he knows what love is and not being able to capture it, he leaves. He hides in the past, until he is found and the life force that is Ash rolls his ass into the light. Never realizing what he thought he had was nothing close to what he could have, until it’s too late.
A story of friendships, life, family and what REAL love is. When someone loves you for the YOU that you are always, not what you put out there, or what society pigeon holes you to be, not the wheels that you rolled in on, or the parents that raised you, just YOU. I LOVED this story, completely and utterly enjoyed!
